It’s just me, 3 cats, and a dog. Darting and tumbling around this huge, 15 room, shabby-chic home. The favorite son is AWAY (temporarily), and I am lost.
Soon the boy/man will start his last year of high school. By next September, the nest will be empty for reals.
Then what will I do? Join the foreign service? Teach abroad? Get a law degree? Sell the house? Oh my. Prospects seem to go on forever.
I have about a year to figure that out.
My intention is to thoughtfully devote this school year learning how to be alone.
